Hey so how does @midnight work? Do the celebrities come up with he jokes? Is the whole thing scripted? Do you give everyone suggestions for jokes? How much of the jokes are improv and how much is written by the writing staff
There’s a writing staff (a great one) that comes up with the games and writes copy for Chris (that he sometimes changes and improvs with on the fly). We write a TON of sample jokes (“answers”) for each game and present them to the comedians when they arrive (2-3 hours before show time). Usually, the comics have a ton of jokes they’ve written too. Basically, the guests and writers work together to create the funniest comedy gumbo possible.
We say this a lot, but AST Records keeps the cavalcade of amazing comedians recording albums coming. At the very end of this month, AST has the amazing Guy Branum recording his very first comedy album at the at the always awesome Nerdmelt Showroom.
It’s free to attend, so mark this down for Thurs. July 31st, 7PM as what you will be doing, hopefully.
